Windows 8 Minimum System Requirements

We all know that Windows 8 has some amazing enhancements. But all this amazing stuff comes at the cost of your system resources for eg. CPU power, RAM etc. So let us take a close look at the basic minimum system requirements for Windows 8:

  • 1 gigahertz (GHz) or faster 32-bit (x86) or 64-bit (x64) processor
  • RAM (Random Access Memory) requirements are again very high, but these have become a standard for most modern computing. 1 gigabyte (GB) RAM  for the 32-bit edition of Windows 8 or 2 GB RAM if you are running the 64-bit edition.
  • Windows 8 takes up around 16 GB hard disk space if it's the 32-bit edition and if you are using the 64-bit edition, you need to have 20 GB of free space in order to install Windows 8.
  • A DirectX 9 compatible graphics device preferably with WDDM 1.0 or higher driver
  • If you plan to use it on a touch device like a Tablet, then you need to have a supported touch Input, for instance a multi-touch enabled touch screen.
